Innisrush signs the Ulster Covenant

In September 1912, some 299 locals from in, and around the Innisrush area, signed the Ulster Covenant (or the ‘Declaration’ if you were a female), in Innisrush Orange Hall.  Adam D. Glasgow was the agent in charge of organising the signatures. There were also other local signings at Eden Orange Hall, Tamlaght O’Crilly Orange Hall, Killymuck and Tivaconavy.

Innisrush Signs the Ulster Covenant

Ulster Covenant and Declaration signed at Innisrush Orange Hall in September 1912.

I am not particularly interested in the politics, but instead keen to see this record of who was living in the area at the time.  The unique documents provide a fascinating historical record, of a moment in time.

One signature among the 299 was illegible.  As well as signing the covenant/declaration, each person then listed their general address.  Many signatories were from Innisrush village, while others wrote down the townland they were from, such as nearby places like Tyanee, Moneystaghan, Ballynease, Ballymacpeake or Glenone.
